Knocked Out

I just woke up holding an ice cold cup of tea. It took me a while to get my bearings - firstly, I was in Plymouth, teaching, now I am home in London, and secondly: That whole Earthquake/Tsunami thing actually was on the radio as I fell asleep (probably causing me to fall asleep, to stop worrying) - I didn't dream it. And also: I almost missed yet another family Birthday, even though yesterday I picked up those two little guys as part of a present to send (late as always). Which is why I finally woke up from persistent phone ringing.
My hair is as shocked as I am. I am truly sorry. Also very confused about it being dark outside. Also worried about the sudden suffering in the world.

I've never before missed anyone's birthday to to actually being asleep, I have, however, missed at least three this year already due to just being plain rubbish at it. No matter if I set reminders or not.

I think I could do with a weekend off. Not this weekend, maybe next weekend...
OK, new cup of tea coming up.
Huh, I feel weird...

I am currently living in New Zealand where we are still recieving a series of earthquakes and aftershocks. Last night a big aftershocks woke me up and had me rushing to the door. As it passed I yawned and said to my partner, "Well, guess it's time I normally get up anyway." He seemed confused and told me that it was only 2am.
Hahaha. Super disorientation!

Even the slightest earthquake is so confusing... the magnitude of wide-spread confusion caused by this catastrophe is horrifying.

I shouldn't really mix it up with whingeing about sleep deprivation, but I've not managed to separate and sort my thoughts today.
